Respiratory Pathogens 33 PCR Kit

Introducing the Respiratory Pathogens 33 PCR Kit from Fast-Track Diagnostics. This multiplex real-time PCR for detection of pathogen genes uses TaqMan® technology, and is a rapid and effective tool to quickly diagnose a range of respiratory infections.

This test is for use with extracted RNA and DNA from respiratory samples (throat/nasal swabs, bronchoalveolar lavage and sputum) of human origin.

Newly TGA approved, this kit is now available in Australia exclusively from Banksia Scientific.
